Default Poster presentation.. Worth it?

Hi guys, need your opinion. I m here in USA for CS exam. I applied for poster presentation in an international opioid conference at Harvard, Boston and the poster is selected. However to present that i have to extend my stay and register for the conference which is 550$. Is it really worth staying and presenting? Can i write that in my ERAS that i got selected for poster presentation? I am actually the 2nd author, the first presenter will be there anyway.

If the conference is of real interest to you, then go. But if someone is going to be presented anyway, you can still include it in your CV.
